Project Brief – Podcast: product development | audio content
A Fistful of Scripts v2.audio (FFSv2) | about
The podcast sector is experiencing rapid, exponential growth:
Friday, September 8, 2017 — Michael Mason, Director of ABC Radio, today announced a one million dollar boost to the corporation’s podcast production aimed at supporting emerging community-based podcasters and extending the range and diversity of content.
February 18, 2019 — Pocket Casts, a beloved podcasting app that hails from Adelaide, was bought out by US public radio group NPR and its affiliated public radio stations in New York (WNYC) and Chicago (WBEZ), who are behind some of the audio format’s biggest hits, including true crime series Serial, and the serendipitous This American Life.
Business model/concept for A Fistful of Scripts v2.audio (FFSv2) is designed to tap into this growth and market potential. Using existing market-tested creative content, creative industries contacts and rapidly diminishing tech costs, I launched into strategic research, planning and content production in mid-2016.

Various podcasts have attracted me as a listener:
The audio space is already driving rapid changes to the way people interact with technology. Smart speakers and voice software are already impacting, changing and embedded within consumers lifestyles. The discussion around digital footprints showed how through digital assistants Alphabet‘s Google Home, Apple’s HomePod and Apple’s Siri, millions of users engage voice software via smartphone to play games, find music or trawl for. In fact, Amazon’s Alexa software constantly harvests snatches of audio. It records and beams commands to Amazon servers.
